Donna Lee Granville joined the Brooklyn College faculty in Spring 2019. Her research and teaching interests coalesce around the idea that symbolic and material boundaries manifest themselves as mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion at all levels of social life. As a researcher, Donna studies boundaries of belonging and the notions of difference that perpetuate inequality as well as creative solutions to bridging symbolic and material divides. Her current research projects incorporate her interests in race and ethnicity, citizenship and immigrant integration, and Afro-Caribbean immigrant populations. Previous work has examined the religious needs of marginalized urban youth populations and the spiritual redemption of hip-hop culture. As an instructor, Donna teaches courses that are geared towards helping students of all ages and backgrounds discover how the sociological imagination empowers them to better activate and direct their agency.
